The legend about Wawel Dragon is the most recognizable and common tales in Poland. The Cracow (Kraków) town was established by King Krakus (Krak or Gragch). It was settled on the Wawel Hill which turned out to be dragon's lair. The dragon was an evil creature, pillaging nearby villages, eating animals and even men. The prize for slaying dragon was high, but Noone could beat him, even mighty warriors. And then the cobbler named Skuba accepted the task:he used simple trick and stuffed sheep's skin with sulphur and gave it to dragon. The creature of course swallowed the bait, got very thirsty and started to drink the water from nearby Vistula River. It drunk it till it exploded. Skuba became our Polish hero ;)
This is one of the oldest Polish legends, it was written in XII century for the first time. In XV century the tale was well known across the Europe in many versions. The interesting fact is that in versions known before late XVI century Krakus was the dragonslayer.
Today you can find some other adaptations: the parody of this legend appears in one of The Witcher novels. You can see a modern version in Legendy Polskie YouTube series.
